It’s been a real honour to be part of Sport Relief again this year. This is the third year that we have produced a schools fundraising video for Comic/ Sport Relief. Every year we can guarantee that the project will be hectic but fun, and at times, stressful trying to get hundreds of small children to daunce/ laugh/ smile/ fundraise on cue!
For the 2016 campaign, we were asked to provide two separate videos - one for primary aged kids and another for nursery schools. We worked with the guys over at Out of the Ark (who wrote and produced the fundraising song) and we’re really pleased with both outcomes.
As this years song was the same as 2014, we wanted the video to incorporate lots of different elements to ensure the video felt new and exciting. In order to achieve this we filmed at four different locations for the Primary video - Noel Park Primary School, Swiss Cottage School, Guildford Spectrum and Nuffield Health swimming pool in Kingston.
The staff and children were amazing across all of our different shoots and it was really special to film at Swiss Cottage School as we were able to see, first hand, the impact that Sport Relief’s fundraising can have. Swiss Cottage caters for children with learning difficulties, autism spectrum disorders, emotional mental health needs, physical needs and communication disorders and they are doing an amazing job of developing and making a difference to hundreds of children’s lives.
At the bottom of the post you can see the Primary School’s Fundraising Video in full - we are so pleased to have been involved in Sport Relief’s most successful year yet; with the current total raised amounting to over £55 million!
